Tina Turner - the "Queen of Rock and Roll" - is caught in the middle of a cathartic performance in this classic 1967 shot. Best known for her overpowering stage presence, her long legs, big hair, and raspy voice, Tina Turner was perhaps the most popular live female entertainer of her time.
Already an established photographer for such magazines as Life and Look, Baron WolmanÂ’s astounding contribution to the realm of rock 'n' roll began in the 60s when he took on a freelance photography position for Rolling Stone Magazine. From 1967 through 1970, he was their chief photographer and his pictures appeared in virtually every issue. Baron Wolman lived in the Haight-Ashbury during the Â‘Summer of Love.' During the electrifying era, his lens captured such legendary 1960s icons as Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Phil Spector, Jim Morrison, Ike and Tina Turner, and Timothy Leary.
